Embroidered Fashion in Florence

Embroidered Fashion in Florence

Ciao from Italy! I am so excited to be sharing with you guys all the way from overseas. I am currently studying abroad with my school in Florence, Italy, and so far it has been an amazing experience. Apart from all of the cultural experiences and inspiration, I have been learning a ton about Italian fashion and what it means to be made in Italy.

Since being in Italy the past two weeks, Europe has had quite the heat wave! I found a Fashionista who was dressed so fun and weather-oriented. The standout piece that got my attention the most was her super retro, vintage, embroidered jean jacket. She mentioned that she purchased it at a vintage fair in the uber-famous Pitti Filati Vintage Trade Show—how cool is that!

She paired this killer piece with a denim-on-denim look, which is one of my personal favorites. Her distressed jean shorts were also a cool vintage Levis find from a renewal shop in Florence. The fringed, distressed hem and pinned sides revealed just a little more leg while keeping her covered. They give the best coverage while also maintaining a cool, easy, and effortless appearance.

To keep it pulled together, she added a white criss-cross bandeau top and comfortable nude mules. I love that this shoe trend has stuck around for a while now; mules are the perfect throw-on piece that can really make an outfit. I know I’ll be keeping mine around for the next few months. To bring a few pops of intrigue to her outfit, she added a bright red lipstick, gold detailed jewelry, and retro tortoise shell round sunglasses.
